Do you think a tester's role is shrunk in agile software development?

Many project managers tell their testers, Oh! We are working in agile development, so we need to wrap things quickly. And to be able to do that, if you find a defect, report to the developer immediately and get it fixed. No need to document the defect. On being asked, why, the obvious answer is as a part of agile development we need to ensure that we minimize documentation, save time and hence reduce cost. Also, since Agile talks about being collaborative, the tester needs to discuss the test case with developer and assist him in his development. What role is the tester playing

How can you Qualify, Quantify and Automate your Agile Testing approach   (181 Views)
In Agile Testing, testers adapt to rapid deployment cycles and changes in testing patterns. It involves the process of testing from the clients perspective at a very early stage it self. Relaying just on manual and intuition testing is not enough; you need to automate to deliver on time. Your degree of automation will depend on the nature of project and of course your budget to invest into automation tools and scripting effort. The advent of many open source tools can ease up the purse a bit though.

What challenges have you experienced in software test automation ?   (228 Views)
More often than not, when there is a test automation discussion, the first question being asked is Which tool do you use I have noticed that, software test automation succeeded after a series of failures. Another challenge faced by test automation for mature software products is that automated test procedures are never quite the same as manual test procedures. They can be similar, but some things will need to be different because you no longer have an intelligent, perceptive human being watching every test and able to make reasonable assumptions about the source of errors.
